said we will raise the debt ceiling for a couple months and, you know, there you go. we haven't gotten any of the real work done? >> it was a short-term punt but i think it was pretty shrewd move by the republicans because you can't default on our debt. if interest rates went up even slightly the amount of interest we would have to pay on our $16 trillion debt would be enormous. you can't do that. it would be shooting ourself in the foot. they tried closing down the government back in the 1990s. that didn't didn't work too well. they're focusing on what is called the sequester, which are across the board spending reductions. that's where i think they will make their stand. we'll have a good robust debate about the level of spending we'll have in this country. the cuts in the sequester are too much for the pentagon for republicans to like. that will be focus rather than having republicans blamed for defaulting on the debt or shutting down the government. that was a shrewd move on their part. melissa: everybody talks about we need to get entitlement spending uncontrol. we need to balance

ceiling increase unless the senate passes a budget. we are not going to just keep raising the debt ceiling, we are going to make a down payment on debt reduction and we are going to putt -- we are going to point the country in the right direction. we are going to cut spending. [applause] there will be times when conservatives disagree on the way forward. we never marched in lockstep. we can deliver it in private. all we should ask for each other is that we give an honest account of our actions and the reasons for them. we should challenge the left, not each other. if we take a prudent course we will be in very good company. take james madison. nowadays we call him the founder and the father of the constitution. but at the constitutional convention he lost key arguments. he fought to give each state the same number of seats in the senate. he wanted to give congress more power. he wanted them to be able to be tough state laws. in both cases, he argued vigorously for his side. in both sets -- in both cases he lost. when it came to ratify the when it came time to ratify the constitution, there

that in eight years. the props for the market show that hopes for a debt ceiling will happen. germany and china are looking pretty good. you mention the corporate earnings. 68% of the companies are beating expectations. the questions you raise are very relevant. questions about whether the etf money is still coming into the market. durable goods and home sales and on wednesday we get the gdp figures which could keep the rally. >> we always keep tabs on the auto industry. pretty big news overnight from toyota? >> yes. they're number one globally between 2008 and 2010 in terms of vehicles sold. they got that crown back again this year in 2012 with 9.75 million vehicles sold. what's amazing about their retaking the number one position is they did it without china. they saw a 4.9% drop in china because of a territorial dispute between china and japan. they are looking for above average growth in 2013. very impressive status. >> steve, thank you very much. steve sedgwick, live in london. let us know why you're awake. give us an e-mail or tweet us@bshacklin. we'll read the best responses. still on "w

the debt ceiling. in part, because the way the question provisions were written. they were unbalanced. 50% of our cuts come from the defense. it just cut everything by the same amount as opposed to give our military leaders the pentagon to cut from unsuccessful and outdated programs and put more money into the most successful and important programs. with that said, the only thing worse than the defense cuts and sequestration is no cuts at all. if we don't have the sequestration cuts at the top line revenue level went we will increase the debt ceiling with almost nothing to show for it. part of the reasons why the house republicans this week, extended the debt ceiling for three months to feel out paul ryan and his team to draft a budget that gets us balanced in 10 years but also protects the department of defense from further cuts because they have already been cut by $500 billion. >> do you get the idea, do you get the sense that americans are tired of world business. that doing some business here at home is gaining traction with people. are they world leadership weary? is the american ho

to raise taxes. two major points are coming up. the continuing resolution and the debt ceiling. both of those are coming up in the next couple of months. those are leverage points that are the mirror image of the fiscal cliff. those are leverage points that if nothing passes the result is not a default on the debt. that's scare hmongering from the president. the -- scaremongering from the president. those are temporary partial shutdowns. we've seen that before in 1995 when republicans stood together, and the result was some political pain, to be sure, but it was also year after year of balanced budgets and some of 9 most fiscally responsible policies from congress we have seen in modern times. [applause] the only hope of getting anything affirmative done is requesting to come from those leverage points because president obama has indicated, sadly, he has no interest in being bill clinton. he has no interest in tacking to the middle. he has no interest in compromising with anybody, and the only way we're going to restrain the out of control spending and debt that's threatening our fut
